New Year's Resolution

Beyond the usual promises to work out more and shave off 15 pounds or so, I can't think of a better New Year's Resolution than this one, from Atlas Shrugged:

I swear--by my life and my love of it--that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

The only exception to this is my immediate family, which is really not an exception - I think the very definition of family is those people you move under the umbrella of your own self, to join you as part of your "I".

Happy New Year!
